The following that your are about to read is what happens when no-one can be bothered to actually write a proper blog entry about something reasonably interesting, and instead think publishing group emails in the style of David Thorne is something that might be reasonably interesting. Shit...here's the launch stuff...

Yo yo! Morning queenies!
Following from last night’s chats, and broken bottle bar fight at the Grand Union, I think that this is a pretty comprehensive breakdown of what we need for the launch.In other words, let’s get on it…
Production Deadline for Launch Party – October 15th
Venues to confirm - Cafe 1001 – we got 999 problems, but this venue ‘aint one; London Bridge – don’t even know the venue name, Johnny Three-Fingers says its pretty cool…
Possible Performers - Jarderes por Fuera – Contacted these guys, music’s wicked, are well interested!; Latin Dub Soundsystem – These guys are sick and fronted by Yungun’s aka Essar aka Nico Suavé!;
Locksy, what you sayin bout this?

Sorry, had to go to Sainsbury’s for some Jojoba hair conditioner and Nivea hands crème.
Tommy B came round last night, and the artwork for the posters, album et al is looking SICK. With venues, reckon we should push for Favela Chic – would go well with Source’s Brazilian. LOL.

I’m sitting right behind you, you prick. Just turn around and talk to me, you soft Turkish twit. Right, well here’s the progress report for the demo CD:
Our Love – DONE
New Balance – DONE
So Good – DONE
What we got – DONE
118 – Rhymes gotta record his verse. And his adlibs. And he should probably have a go at writing them…probably…
What’s happening with Source’s Costume – Shwinn, can you get a quote on how many phillipino children we’ll need to hold the train?

13 for the train, 2 to bring the shoes in, plus we’ll need $500USD to pay off the Somali pirate couriers.
Big news on the New video, the flights to Spain are booked, Equipment is booked and we’ve got the director – just need to find out his name. Cunningham something or other…
Oh yeah, we need to start promoting the Hootananey Gig on 16 Oct, just got to make sure everyone’s gonna be on time and not blind drunk, except Pikey. Gotta find out the name of that barmaid with the blonde dreads...she is FIIIIIIIIT.
Source-waaa been pretty quiet – got any ideas?
